Additional features in Barbell Loader Pro:
  • An ad-free, permission-free experience!

Anyone who leg presses on a regular basis (like me) will love this app! I'm regularly guessing what weight in using. Being able to calculate my 1rm on the fly helps a ton if I decide I want to max out that day.

Not sure if it was in the OP, but can I convert kg to lbs?

Yes you can. You can enter a weight to be calculated in kg or lbs, and it'll return the result in whatever mode (kg, lbs, or mixed) you happen to be in.

Changing the mode means restricting the available discs that will be used for calculations. Additionally, you can set whether discs are ever available under preferences. For example, my gym lacks 55 lbs and 15 lbs plates, so I turn those off. The same goes for some of the change kg plates.

That toggle with certainly help when inputting the plates I used that workout.

Love the idea, but I bought the pro version, locked the plates I don't have access to , then entered 135lbs which including the 45lbs bar should be 2 45lbs plates, it will not give me this no matter what I do.. It keeps changing my weight to 131.5 lbs and gives me for plates, no 45lbs, 2x25lbs, 2x10lbs and 2x5lbs... I tried changing the barbell weight to 45lbs as well and it wouldn't stick. I'll wait until this gets sorted out before buying and before recommending it.


EDIT ****Never mind, Sorted it out after seeing the preferences, turns out I was not in the right section when changing the barbell weight******

Really? I just did what you suggested in "Mixed" mode. I disabled the collars and locked the "25 kg" and "55 lbs" discs, calculated for 135 lbs, and received the exact value ("61.29 kg / 135 lbs").

Did you change the default bar weight (in Preferences, wrench from the dashboard) to 45 lbs? Most people assume that the standard bar is 45 lbs, but it is really 20 kg / 44.09 lbs. If you use spring collars, I'd suggest changing the default bar weight to 45 lbs and just leaving collars turned off.

If you'd like, I can make a video demonstrating what I did. Let me know.

Thanks but as my edit states on my post now it's all sorted. I didn't see the preferences. I have recommended the app on my gym website
